Clear glaze over both lid and jar. Some slight rim chips on the inside of the lid. There is no damage to the outside rim of the lid nor the inside rim of the jar.There are several small gouges or scrapping on the bottom of the base. There is also some "running" of the clear glaze on the outside of the jar when it was fired that caused some loss of the blue floral design.
